Academic calls for end to ‘ritualised humiliation’ & ‘sexual apartheid’ on campus

Wakademic prostitutes are naive?

THE news that Australia’s most prestigious university is allowing apartheid doesn’t shock as much as the bureaucractic response it has issued to defend the practice.—Melbourne’s hypocrisy on gender naive — JENNIFER ORIEL

At the entrance to the lecture, attended by The Australian, signs directed “sisters” to the back of the theatre, and “brothers” to the front. Asked whether seating was segregated, a male attendee said: “It usually is here, yeah.”

Not ‘cute’– this is child abuse!

Academic calls for end to ‘ritualised humiliation’

THE University of Melbourne has declined to condemn gender segregation at public events held by Islamic organisations at its Parkville campus, despite its leading gender-politics academic describing the practice as “sexual apartheid” and a form of “ritualised humiliation”.  –BY:RACHEL BAXENDALE From:The Australian

On April 13, a lecture entitled “Islamic rulings on Jihad in Syria & why great scholars’ silence” (sic) was held in the university’s Copland Theatre by Islamic education organisation Hikmah Way.

At the entrance to the lecture, attended by The Australian, signs directed “sisters” to the back of the theatre, and “brothers” to the front. Asked whether seating was segregated, a male attendee said: “It usually is here, yeah.”

During the event, which had a predominantly Muslim audience of about 250, a small number of men sat in the “women’s” section and were not prevented from doing so. No women sat in the “men’s” section.

The source of contention is a small room created with seven foot high wooden walls. Jannah B’int Hannah describes how she feels in there where she cannot see the imam, or leader of the mosque, speak.

“Boxed in, stifling, suffocating and totally a second class citizen,” says Hannah.

Perhaps its time to change your religion, Hannah!
